If you plan on having a party to watch the Big Game, we have some recipe ideas for you that will leave your guests drooling. Every football season ends with the championship game, the biggest sporting event in the United States. Regardless of whether your team is playing in the game or not, football fans everywhere tune in. Non-football fans even tune in for the other entertainment surrounding the game, like the half-time show or the commercials. If you’re the host of the party this year and struggling to find some snack ideas for your guests, we’ve got some ideas for you that are simple to make and rather tasty to eat. For more Game Day recipes, check out FanSided.

Loaded Potato Skins

This one is a sports bar classic, and surprisingly simple to make. Think of them as upgrades to popping open a bunch of bags of potato chips. You can dress them however you want — cheese, bacon, chives, sour cream, whatever, just throw it on top.

Bonus: They only take 20 minutes to prep using this recipe from the Food Network.

Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

Instead of simply making jalapeño wrappers, the added step of wrapping them in bacon can make yours unique and stand out.

And to top it all off, there are only four ingredients that you’ll need to make this dish that will be ready to serve in 30 minutes: cream cheese, cheddar cheese, jalapeño peppers and bacon. Pop them in the oven before kickoff and you’ll have them hot and ready at the end of the first quarter.

Grilled Potato Kabobs

This is another simple recipe that will make your party stand out from others. There are 10 minutes of prep work, 20 minutes of cook time and you only need Yukon Gold potatoes, vegetable oil, barbecue seasoning and skewers. Wrap bacon around the potatoes for even more flavor.

They’re simple, they’re tasty and they’re easy to make. This is a win-win.
